New Force India car to run next month

Force India's new car is due to run for the first time at Barcelona late next month, just a few weeks before the opening race of the season in Melbourne.

With the team's new livery and sponsorship package due to be unveiled at a press conference in Mumbai on February 7, the team are planning to give their 2008 challenger its first test at Barcelona on February 25.

That will mark the start of a three-day test for the car, with which the team hope to be able to challenge for points this year.

Team owner Vijay Mallya said at the end of last year: "We now have to work to make India proud of its team. We have to however be realistic.

"There will be no miracle in performance in 2008. Even with significantly more input and aero development, all of this takes time.

"From 2009 onwards I am looking forward to obviously significant improvements. I am clear where we want to be in two years' time: at the Indian Grand Prix in 2010, I want to see a Force India car on the podium.'
